Monday, October 07
Time

While many studies of animal cognition have focused on our closest cousins, researchers have begun to look outside the Primate order to gain a better understanding of the evolution of cognition. Carnivores differ greatly in behavior, diet, and social structure from primates, yet they demonstrate equally impressive cognitive abilities. Using bears as an example, Bernstein-Kurtycz will explore the complex cognitive abilities of this fascinating branch of mammals.
